British Airways/American Airlines FAM trip for Atlas Travel/AMEX agents to Charleston SC.


Our hosts Tara Magee (British Airways) and Caitriona Toner (American Airlines) had everything organised to a T at T1. First, it was the Fast Track lane through security then a short stay in the DAA lounge before the flight to LHR was called. Some of the group even squeezed in a bit of duty-free shopping, as you do. Then it was Club World seats on the short flight to London. The group landed at T5 and the flight to Charleston (CHS) took off from T5 so it was a stress and hassle-free transfer. Next was a visit to the excellent BA lounge in T5 where everyone enjoyed some refreshments during the short transfer time.


Needless to say, the entire group were delighted to be accommodated in the BA Club World Business Class cabin onboard the Boeing 787 Dreamliner flight direct from LHR to CHS. This new BA service flies twice weekly on Thursdays and Sundays direct from LHR to CHS with a flight time of 8 hours. The group enjoyed the latest in-flight entertainment and soothing mood lighting that gradually adjusts to create the ideal onboard atmosphere. British Airways renowned in-flight service certainly lived up to its name as very attentive and professional cabin crew served delicious meals and refreshments. Most of the group took advantage of the lie flatbed to catch a few hours’ sleep en route.


As the airport in Charleston is quite small, it took very little time to collect everyone’s luggage and pass through immigration and customs. A wonderful trip so far and a very convenient journey from Dublin.
